Greasy Spoon Manor – An Abandoned Retro Diner and Family Home
Exploring Abandoned Retro Diner and Abandoned Home – Found Vintage Ms Pacman Arcade Game Pool Table
The existing restaurant here opened in 1988. But in 1971, the owners purchased and ran the original restaurant on the site, Country Fare Restaurant. It also had a motel and gas bar.
For over 44 years this local staple has served a greasy spoon breakfast and lunch for the community and the city. A retro style family diner, run by the same family the whole time.
The husband passed away a few years before closing and while the wife still had her health and could enjoy the rest iof her life, she decided to close the doors and live life. The daughters who had grown up doing their homework on the counters and working various jobs at the facility had moved on with their own lives and neither had the time to run the diner.
With 4,500 square feet of space and 208 seats the diner isn’t like most cookie-cutter restaurants built today. At one time they used to stay open to 10 p.m. but over the years as the city grew and more night-time restaurants and sports bars opened they gradually cut back their hours and decided to offer just the food they have always been known for – breakfast and lunches.
In 1995, the restaurant was used for the shooting of an American film called “Johnny and Clyde.”
